PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS:

The best way to reduce your personal carbon emissions: don’t be rich.

—Headline, young adult Website* Vox.com, July 14, 2017.

EXPLAINED: Why Vox Dot Com Is a Smart Investment for General Electric.

—The Washington Free Beacon, May 1st, 2014.

● “Matt Yglesias bought a $1.2 million three-bedroom condo in Washington, D.C., and a bunch of conservatives are pretty appalled that a liberal would have the gall to be rich.”

—The Atlantic, March 22, 2013.

It’s the hypocrisy, Atlantic. Not to mention the sophistry:

I’d start to take global warming seriously when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start to act like it’s a crisis themselves – oh and, I don’t want to hear another goddamn word about Glenn Reynolds’ carbon footprint again.

* Classical reference.

UPDATE: “Left: We’re going to ensure ‘better jobs, better wages, better future.’ Also the Left: Stop making money:” “Vox’s indictment of both Hollywood and the music industry is rather harsh here.”

Heh, indeed.™
